Dark Souls Developer Says Easy Mode Comments Were A Translation Error

Forbes- Comments made by the creator of Dark Souls about adding a possible Easy Mode were a translation error according to Namco Bandai.

The story is too old to be commented.

adding easy mode to dark souls is like taking guns out of battlefield 3, it will not be the same game!

But wouldn't taking the guns out of BF actually make it HARDER to kill your opponent, and since everyone likes the game harder, that would be a plus.

How about "adding easy mode to dark souls is like adding easy mode to ANY game that does not have an 'easy' mode"? :)

not really, you could just easily capture bases and win without any consequence.

Like playing Portal on mute. One might progress through the game but they didn't experience why the game is awesome.

You could read the dialogue.

Well, they'd have to overcome the challenge of navigating the settings to turn on subtitles first. Without a walkthru... idk... that might just be too difficult for some.

Anyway.. glad it's a translation thing. The game is not difficult. The "Too Hard to Try" reputation was perpetuated incorrectly.

Good! Keep those new sales away!

This is why you are posting comments on a game news aggregrator instead of making them yourself.

Maybe now they see the error of going with a 2nd-rate localization publisher.

Dark Souls isn't a game for people who are scared of challenge and it should stay that way

‘This fact is really sad to me and I am thinking about how to make everyone complete the game while maintaining the current difficulty and carefully send all gamers the messages behind it.’

Well that's as clear as mud. Crisis averted.
